Driver side brakes wont work even after replacement

We replaced our brakes and rotors. When bleeding, the passenger side did great but we couldnt get the driver side to work. We replaced the caliper and the brake hose. Fluid shoots out of the hose but it will not hold pressure on the rotor.

Check to make sure you have the rubber seal that goes in between hose and caliper. Also check to make sure seal on caliper piston is not worn or that piston is not sticking. Make sure everthing fits together tightly. If hose is not gasket type, make sure grooves match.

Sounds like a bad caliper. I would return it and try a new one. Theres just not much else that would cause that problem.

Rear passenger brake dosen't work


Are there two brake fluid reservoirs? And are both full? This would be a split-diagonal brake system-front driver and rear passenger are one brake system. Front passenger and rear driver are the other system. You have the one system working-the front passenger and rear driver side works. You will have to keep bleeding the rear passenger side and the front driver side-always start farthest from the master cylinder, but if that wheel just won't bleed air out, make sure the driver front is working and bleeds good. If all else fails, there are pressure bleeder kits available, I don't know the cost, but they work great. They are also a one man bleeding job, as I understand.

you have to bleed all 4 brakes even if you only replaced the 2 , start with the brake farthest from the master cylinder, and work your way up to the closest one, which in your case would be passenger rear, drivers rear, passenger front, drivers front, make sure as your doing this, that the master cylinder never runs out of fluid, or you have to start all over

Just replaced rotor and caliper on passenger side and it works fine but the driver side piston in the caliper is sticking. Also would like to know if I need to bleed both sides even though only 1 side was...


yes you need to bleed both sides starting with the one farthest from the master cylinder and you should try and clean all of the parts with a wire brush that the caliper slides on so that it dont get hung up you can also put a very light coat of grease on these parts to ease opperation of calipers most people who do brakes dont ever clean these parts and thats why their brakes either wear unevenly or dont work properly

I have a 2000 Toyota Tundra V8 4 wheel drive. I just replace new rotor,caliper(old and rusted), and brake pads( front left/right wheel). 1) My friend and I bleed the brake line. I pumped the brake pedal...


Bleed the new caliper again and see if you have ABS. Sometimes those units gave to be bled too. Also check your manual or look online to verify the sequence for bleeding. Keep the master cylinder full through the entire process. If it drops too low, you likely pulled air into the lines and need to start over.

I just replaced both front rotors and pads, along with the driver side caliper. My next step is to now bleed the brakes. my question is do i need to bleed all 4 brakes or just the 1 that was replaced?


you don't need to bleed front brakes if you only did rotors and pads. If you look at the master cylindar, there are 4 lines coming off of it, one for each brake. Only bleed what you replaced.
